**** Janine Stange, who has come to be known as "The National Anthem Girl," made history by completing her mission to sing the "Star Spangled Banner" in all 50 states in time for the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key penning the lyrics for the hallowed song on September 14, 2014.
The Long Island, NY native marked Tennessee as her 50th state, when she sang prior to the Tennessee Titans vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL preseason game in Nashville on August 28 at 7:00pm CST. She has appeared on Today Show, Fox & Friends and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. Her story has been told across America on every major network: ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC.
"For 90 seconds, no matter who we voted for, or what team we want to win - we are as one. When we stand with our hands over our hearts, we are singing 'our song.' That is always to be regarded as a privilege, not a formality. I hope this mission brings a renewed awareness, honor and respect for those who have fought and sacrificed their time, well being, families...and lives for our freedom."
